For 2018

Saturday's some thing to think about . . . .

I get a lot of emails and forwards and some of them have such great information so today I thought I'd share some things to think about.

5 Keys to Happiness - Five things we can do be become happier - I'm always looking at things like this.

This is an article about 7 things that get better with age. I don't agree with the tooth sensitive and allergies and a couple of others. I just went to the dentist for tooth sensitivity and I'm a sneezing fool. What do you think about things improving with age?

And this is about cell phones and cancer. I don't know, but I worry about that. I always read Dr. Mercola and I think he is wise beyond all others. Of course he sells ear phones for about $25. And even though I get nothing for this (lol) and my husband is out of work - I bought 3. They are the best ear phones I've ever bought. Top quality and my husband who is slightly deaf (for real) can hear me on them. The only reason I am sharing this is because I care about y'all.

And Saturday some things to think about would not be complete without a couple of quotes.

Choosing to be positive and having a grateful attitude is a whole cliche, but your attitude is going to determine how you re going to live your life. Joel Osteen

Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgment that something else is more important than fear. - Ambrose Redmoon

Happy Birthday Miriah Carey - wikipedia.

Carey was born in Huntington, Long Island, New York. She is the third and youngest child of Patricia Carey, a former opera singer and vocal coach, and Alfred Roy Carey, an aeronautical engineer. Her mother was Irish American and her father was of Afro-Venezuelan and African American descent; her paternal grandfather, Roberto Nuñez, changed his surname to Carey to better assimilate upon moving to the United States from Venezuela.

Carey was named after the song "They Call the Wind Mariah". Carey's parents divorced when she was three years old. While living in Huntington, racist neighbors allegedly poisoned the family dog and set fire to her family's car. After her parents' divorce, Carey had little contact with her father, and her mother worked several jobs to support the family. Carey spent much of her time at home alone and turned to music to occupy herself. She began singing at around the age of three, when her mother began to teach her after Carey imitated her mother practicing Verdi's opera Rigoletto in Italian.

Carey graduated from Harborfields High School in Greenlawn, New York. She was frequently absent because of her work as a demo singer for local recording studios; her classmates consequently gave her the nickname "Mirage". Her work in the Long Island music scene gave her opportunities to work with musicians such as Gavin Christopher and Ben Margulies, with whom she co-wrote material for her demo tape. After moving to New York City, Carey worked part-time jobs to pay the rent, and she completed 500 hours of beauty school. Eventually, she became a backup singer for Puerto Rican freestyle singer Brenda K. Starr.

In 1988, Carey met Columbia Records executive Tommy Mottola at a party, where Starr gave him Carey's demo tape. Mottola played the tape when leaving the party and was impressed. He returned to find Carey, but she had left. Nevertheless, Mottola tracked her down and signed her to a recording contract. This Cinderella-like story became part of the standard publicity surrounding Carey's entrance into the industry.

March is my 8th month of looking up birthdays. One common thing I see - is that all these people struggled in some way. Now why they became famous - was because they were given a God given talent I suppose. But every body struggles. Don't know why that surprised me so much.

Hey Sandie!

I will say that Miriah Carey is a good singer but she is one strange bird! Now I know why! It is true that most people stuggle. Some just know how to deal with it better than others I suppose.

Hope you have a Wonderful Weekend!

Well my husband should be dead any day now as he has that cell phone glued to his ear 24/7! Atleast he works out EVERY day so maybe it will be a trade off and he will live another day or so:)
